Converted buses are the ultimate DIY mobile home. Taking a bus used to transport people and turning it into a rolling home with all the luxuries of a home is am an amazing feat. Those that have converted a bus into a home should be applauded for their can-do attitude and their ability to transform the mundane into something magical and that’s what we’re doing.
These 7 bus conversions will certainly inspire you to hit the road. Traveling the country, whether in a factory-built camper or a DIY bus conversion is a dream for many of us. A recent article said people, especially the younger generation, are turning their focus on experiences rather than possessions. That means more people are looking for inexpensive, original ways to travel and live. These 7 bus conversions we found online prove just how easy that can be.
7 Bus Conversions that will Make You Swoon
A Family of 5 Calls “Big Bertha” Home
This bus conversion is an interesting story that was featured on Treehugger last year. The couple, along with their three children, converted the bus into their full-time home after a new job presented itself. Rather than spend hours away from each other because of the long commute, they decided to transform the bus so they could be together and save money. They turned the bus into a solar power home big enough for now and later as the kids get older.

A Family of 6 Enjoys the Freedom of Living in a Converted Bus
Smaller Living featured this cool take on a bus conversion that is home to a family with 4 small children who are all homeschooled. We love how creative they were, the master bedroom is on one end, the kid’s bunk beds on the other end, with plenty of space to move around in between. They also got creative and utilized every inch of available space for living or storage space.
